responded to PM, but be advised, thats how its done on the 87-89s, I don't know if the strut mount is assembled differently in the 90.5-99s. But I think they're pretty close. I doubt the bearings are any different.

If i am going to take apart the mounting plate, if i have to, why not just replace the bearings? I am a little lost here...

Oh sure! more power to yah! That was just a low cost alternative. Otherwise, sure, just replace the strut mount, or just the bearings if you can get ahold of some. But like i said, if you're going to do that, you might as well do your struts at the same time. Doing it is not the most fun thing in the world, it requires you to remove those two stubborn lower mounting bolts and will also require you to get another alignment.
